• Antergos freezing [RAM Problem]

    I am using Antergos wih Deepin DE.
    This isthe fourth time my antergos deeping freezes, this time i was installing Webstrom from the jetbrains toolbox.
    After rebooting my pc, and reinstalling webstorm it didnt freeze.
    Could you please help ?
    i’ll give you the log file here :

  • @oussama.ah95
    I had previously used the deepin desktop and I think it uses a lot of ram, progressively more over time… I’m not sure what to make of the log file, but you would be wise to look at your system resources with a system monitor and maybe you’ll see an indication that something is going wrong before it freezes.

  • @Moe_Narrow
    Thanks for replying,

    But i have 16GB of RAM

    i would bet to graphics hickup and not deepin producing the freezing…

    i do not know what this is but spamming a lot fails:

    fail on touchpad too:

    deepin traces also:

    uh! and this looks bad:

  • @joekamprad
    Hello do you know how can i fix it ?
    this hapened also when i was installing Android Studio.
    I think the touchpad failure is a result because when it happens : everything freezes even the mouse cursor

  • will need some more info about your system:

    DE (Desktop environment)

    and the output of:

    inxi -F -x

    command not found?

    sudo pacman -S inxi

  • @joekamprad
    Oh yea I’ve seen that before, on a friend’s system running antergos. He built his computer and It would get some stuck pixels and about 5 minutes later it would usually freeze. It’s usually an issue specific to certain hardware.

    I never had any luck with anbox, android studio, any of it. I tried to install all that stuff to find something that worked and then for some reason I couldn’t boot the next day. That was a fun ~8 hours of trying to rescue my system.

  • I can confirm that I had the same issue last week after installing Anbox on my XFCE machine, I reinstalled everything after I thrown Anbox off to avoid any irritation.

  • @joekamprad

    The first time it happened when i added a new 8GB RAM card and reinstalled antergos.
    and i was installing Android Studio it happened.

    Android Studio works for me, i dont think android studio is the reason…

    @Bryanpwo should i format my pc again ?

  • I will take a look to related issues with your device, may there is a need to get some special configuration.

  • @joekamprad
    Thank you very much

  • @oussama.ah95 said in Antergos freezing:

    Lenovo ideapad 500-15ISK

    do you have drivers for discrete and legacy graphics installed?


  • @oussama.ah95 said in Antergos freezing:


    The i915 DRM driver is known to cause various GPU hangs, crashes and even full system freezes. It might be necessary to disable hardware acceleration to workaround these issues. One solution is to use the following Xorg configuration.

    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
    	Driver      "intel"
    	Option	    "DRI"	"false"

    Otherwise, specific applications such as Chromium and Firefox browsers can be instructed to disable hardware rendering directly.

    Another option that seems to work for some users is to add the i915.enable_rc6=0 kernel boot parameter, which will cause the CPU/GPU to remain in high-power modes, but seems to resolve most cases of GPU hangs and system freezes.

    Note: If the system appears to hang after “Loading Initial Ramdisk”, make sure that the IGD aperture size in BIOS is less than 4GB.

  • Thanks @joekamprad
    No, I forget to install them after formating.
    Should i install them ?
    As i mentioned earlier, it hapened for the first time after i added the RAM card and it happens when i am downloading large softwares.

    could it be a RAM problem since pacman download files to RAM ?

  • Ram is used by tempfs /tmp is using the ram… so yes

  • May try do a ram test?

  • @joekamprad
    how can i test my ram ?

  • @oussama-ah95
    I hope it gets you further, although don’t rule out Android Studio, yet. That it works for you, does not mean it maybe is messing the system up in the background.

    *Just a note and don’t take this too personal, I’m only saying this also for all users, try to be as complete to discribe your problem. In this case we later found out you bought new RAM. Again don’t take this as an attack, or anything, but if we knew from the beginning we could immediately look in that direction.

  • @Bryanpwo
    Thank you for your answer,
    Sorry if forget ti mention it

  • I would do a ramtest from liveiso like systemrescuecd http://www.system-rescue-cd.org
